B&B Via dell'Astrologo

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you travel to Cosenza, want a quiet room for restful sleep, and be near all the sites of Old Town, then the Bed and Breakfast Via dell’ Astrologo is a perfect choice. You will be delighted. The B&B is down a narrow side street offering 2 exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated, charming guest rooms and is lovingly cared for by 2 brothers, Mario and Marco. Mario arranged for both our transfers to and from the B&B making it so easy to settle in to enjoy the area. His gracious reception and attentiveness, enthusiasm and recommendations for Cosenza, delicious breakfast with fruit, yogurt, breads, jams and Italian coffee are true treasures. They have created a unique restful haven for their guests.

This gem hidden in 'old' Cosenza is tucked away, slowed down, very authentic Medieval housing. Once inside, it is a true delight. Well preserved woodwork, ceiling beams are breathtaking. At the same time, very comfortably appointed with very nice bathrooms (we used both of the rooms for our family of 5), beautiful china, and artwork. Very nicely decorated and you feel 'at home' right away. The breakfasts we had were wonderful, and Mario was very helpful with maps, directions, translations. The walk to 'new' Cosenza is a nice stroll. Wi-fi worked great. It is a little hard to find; you may want to ask Marco and Mario for good directions. We were very please with this property.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms and both are equally nice. Very small window in each that looks out onto t...

My husband and I spent two nights here. It is run by two brothers who do not live in the flat. There are two suites each with private bath The breakfast they provide is lovely. The rooms were clean and very comfortable and the location, in old town was very central. We would stay here again.

B&B Via dell'Astrologo is a perfect gem hidden in a maze of medieval confusion that is the center of Cosenza. Without our Garmin GPS device we would never have found it. Even after we found it we couldn't find the addresses without walking up and down the street and asking for help. That said, I loved it. Marco is very kind and helpful. He told us where we could park our car for free and showed us everything on a map which he gave us. The room is quite large and very comfortable with a cozy window seat and a nice large shower. We had an early train when we left so Marco left our breakfast in our room so we wouldn't starve. That was very nice of him. The location is perfect for touring Cosenza on foot though every direction is a steep climb up or down and it is very easy to get turned around. The distances, however, are short. I am a travel agent and would recommend this B&B to my clients who are in good shape. Cheers to Marco and Mario for such a beautiful B&B. The photos don't do it justice. Try to get one of the front door too! Thanks!

Room Tip: There are only 2 rooms and I didn't see the other one.

My wife and I chose a B&B at the end of our 3 week Italy trip as a restful hotel alternative in the heart of Cosenza, since we had been in about 7 hotels throughout Italy before that. We were very happy with the personlaized and courteous service of the owners, including the cleanliness and brekfast service each morning. Mario, one of the owners can be relied on for detailed assistance as to ameneties in the area, directions and most other things a traveller needs. Highly recommended if staying in Cosenza.

The B+B is located in the heart of Old Cosenza (not to be confused with the more lively but less historically interesting new Cosenza). The owners were incredibly helpful with itineraries and general advice. The restructured palazzo is very tasteful and everything is impeccably clean. This place is to be recommended.
